Kevin McCarthy says Nancy Pelosi 'owes American an apology'

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) has blasted Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), saying she "owes America an apology" after Democrats delayed coronavirus relief money.

Speaking during a Saturday interview on Fox News's "Justice with Judge Jeanine," McCarthy accused Pelosi of politicizing the coronavirus crisis, causing delays for the important stimulus bills in Congress.

"She has held up every single bill, when it came to coronavirus, that we put forth," McCarthy told host Judge Jeanine Pirro.

"The first time she held it up so the D-triple-C, the Democratic arm, could attack Republicans," McCarthy said.

The Republican leader was referring to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, which recruits candidates, raises funds, and helps run election campaigns for the party.

"The second time she held it up for the entire week to get more funding for the [National] Endowment [for] the Arts and the Kennedy Center and try to put the Green New Deal in," he added.

McCarthy said that while President Trump has been trying to combat the coronavirus crisis, Pelosi has been trying to "politicize" it.

"She was more interested in investigations, impeachment, and ice cream," McCarthy added.

"Instead of focusing on what we really need to accomplish here."

The last reference was to a recent late-night TV appearance.

During the show, Pelosi showed off the ice cream she had stashed in her home refrigerator to help her cope with a stay-at-home order.

The move triggered a backlash as many felt angered that Pelosi was showing off her lavish lifestyle while Americans are queueing up outside foodbanks.

McCarthy also said he backs Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's (R-KY) recent proposal.

Sen. McConnell recently supported the idea of allowing states to declare bankruptcy.

The move would allow governors to receive more federal money to deal with their own ballooning deficits.

"What I see is these liberal governors, when they didn't manage their own states, they looked at an opportunity here, much like many of the Democrats that want to grab more money," McCarthy said.
